    CHS Student Wellness Survey

    The Counseling Department at Cleveland STEM High School is committed to providing students with social emotional support and resources, especially during this difficult time due to the COVID-19 pandemic. To help support our students, the Counseling Department will be overseeing a Wellness Survey that will be given to students during Advisory class on Wednesday October 21st. This survey is completely optional and students and parents can opt-out of the survey at any point. The purpose of the survey is to check-in on students’ wellbeing and to help in identifying students who may need further support or resources.

    Please review the Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment (PPRA) notice in the link below to inform you of your rights around student collection of data through surveys. Students can opt out of this survey at any time and/or can have their parent sign an Opt-Out form and email it to the student’s school counselor by Friday October 16th. Students can also choose on the day of the survey to not complete it as well.

    School day pictures and ID cards

    For safety reasons, students will not be taking school pictures on campus this year. We are currently looking at other ways that students can still take pictures or acquire an ID if needed. We will let families know once a plan is in place.

    Calling all Running Starters

    Join the Running Start Lunch Break! What is it? A virtual community space for Running Start students to connect with each other. When is it? Wednesdays from 11:30 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. Sign up here for a link to the meeting. Contact Veronica Chea if you have any questions.

    Meal distribution

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture has extended its flexible free school meals program through December. However, it is still important for families to complete the Free and Reduced-Price Meal Application, especially during the COVID pandemic. Families must re-apply for meal benefits each year, using the online application or paper application. Families with students who qualify for free/reduced meals may be eligible to receive low-cost, high speed internet services through their home internet provider and reduced fees for a variety of programs.
    SPS is offering free student meals at 40 school locations and eight bus routes. Meal sites are open Monday-Friday from 11:15 a.m. - 1:15 p.m.
     

    Flu shot season starts now

    Flu Vaccine is even more important during COVID-19 pandemic. Cleveland School Based Health Center offers flu shots for any Seattle Public School students that register to our clinic. If students or their younger siblings need flu shots (or other immunizations), contact Cleveland School Based Health Center (SBHC) at 206-263-2608. SBHC is open daily from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. We provide preventative health services: annual and sport physicals, immunizations, wellness/stress counseling, confidential teen health (sexual, reproductive, mental health). Visit options include Telehealth, phone visits and in-person visits by appointment only.

    • We can see any Seattle Public Schools (SPS) K-12 school students (if they do not have access to their School Based Health Center or if it is more convenient to get here). Parents may call our clinic to find out how to register.
    • Here are registration documents for our clinic
    • NO INSURANCE necessary! Health services are FREE for students!

    Cleveland 2020 yearbook pick up
